If Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is to prove that global warming isn’t real, he may have to do so in court.

The Environmental Protection Agency rejected Cuccinelli’s petition for reconsideration of its finding that carbon dioxide and other emissions contributed to climate change. The EPA rejected nine similar petitions as well, and the agency isn’t mincing words with what it thinks of the petitions.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said the critiques were rooted in “selectively edited, out-of-context data and a manufactured controversy.”

Cuccinelli has also asked a federal appeals court to review the EPA’s findings, so his fight may be far from over.
